View Full Version : Putting Labor price on your estimate...

Just wondering if you guys do that. Do you show the potential customer your labor costs vs material costs when you hand them their estimates? Thanks

I never show my labor number. However I will offer every customer the opportunity to work on a time and materials basis. I explain to them that if I bid te job and something comes up - like an inspector that won't show, then I am out my time. But if it's a t&m job and the inspector doesn't show, then I bill them for each hour that I wait.
